Hi 3 Birds friends, its Mary Ann here today with something fun to add to your Thanksgiving table! How about turkey place cards?
These are really so easy to make, and will add just the perfect touch to each place setting! To start, I made the “feathers” by cutting 3 scalloped circles using my Silhouette die cutting machine. (scalloped circle punches would also work for this!) Next, I cut the circles in half, and glued them on to my place card base made from a 4×5 piece of cardstock that had been folded in half.
The turkey body and beak were cut from cardstock and added to on top of the feathers. For the turkey’s wattle, I cut the individual piece from a strip of red quilling paper found in the Holiday Season Card Making Kit. Next came the googly eyes that I had in my stash of craft supplies.
After the turkey body was complete, I added a rectangle piece of patterned paper, and did some machine stitching around the edges. *Designer Tip: You can also achieve a “stitched” look by making a dash lined border around the edges with a marker. To complete the place cards, I printed the names on my computer, then cut into small strips and added to the center of each card.
Thanks so much for stopping by the 3 Birds Design blog today!
